Although the development of the old Chinese optical industry has begun to take shape, and it has industry associations such as industry gangs or industrial associations, it is a private shop and family workshop in its production and distribution. Its products are mostly decorated for the ruling class. The product, the output is not much, the price is expensive, so the development is slow. Especially in the production industry. Until the eve of liberation, there are only a few manufacturers producing glasses in the country. They are all one households. The production workers are more than a dozen people, and there are at least one or two people. The production process is very backward, the product quality is inferior, and the varieties are monotonous. And decades of consistent system.
After the founding of the People's Republic of China, under the guidance of the correct line of the party, the production of glasses began with manual production by small family workshops, and gradually organized into small enterprises that cooperated to produce. For example, before the cooperation and public-private partnership in Beijing, there were not many optical industry.
There are nearly one hundred small workshops in the industry, and there are about 270 employees. There are 39 commercial and commercial shops in the business, and there are less than 300 employees, of which only 10 (ie: Lean, Daming, Dongfang, Jingming, Changming, Siming) , Baolong, Liu Mingzhai, Sun Yongliang often remember).
With the rapid development of China's economic construction, the optical industry has also been vigorously developed. In terms of industry, Beijing, Shanghai, Suzhou and other major producing areas have a certain scale of glasses production base. Such as Haiyi Glasses Factory, Shanghai Glasses Second Factory, Beijing Optical Factory, Beijing 608 Factory, Beijing 603 Factory, Suzhou Optical Factory, etc., has become a large-scale backbone enterprise of China's optical industry, and its national medium-sized enterprises with a scale of nearly 1,000 people. The quality and supporting capacity of its production staff rank first in the country, and some products are municipal or national quality products. Some famous brand products have been exported for many years and are sold nationwide, and are well-known both at home and abroad.
In addition, some defense industrial enterprises, some instruments and meters industry also turned to the glasses industry for production and processing, and the commercial service department has also continuously expanded or increased sales outlets and added optometry L equipment and instruments. Some cities also attach great importance to theoretical education. For example, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Tianjin, Chongqing, etc. also set up Ding glasses technology short training classes and staff and other professional technical schools to train a large number of professional and technical personnel for the optical industry.
